In recent months, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has introduced enhanced safety equipment in a large number of models. Dual airbags with ABS and EBD was offered as standard across variants of S-Cross and Baleno. This was followed by making dual airbags, ABS with EBD available as an option in all variants of Ciaz, Eritga, DZire, WagonR and Celerio.
The Maruti Suzuki Alto is the highest selling car for the past 10 years now. On an average they sell around 22,000 cars all over India. The Alto is the primary choice for first time car buyers and/or people who want to have a small budget secondary car. By adding these additional features now will only increase their base as earlier customers who were more safety conscious would have to look elsewhere for their requirements.
